Ohio Machine Announce 2019 Coaching Staff

October 30, 2018
COLUMBUS, Ohio– The Ohio Machine have announced today that Darryl Delia, Eric Genova and Bart Sullivan have signed contracts to be a part of the Ohio Machine coaching staff for the 2019 season, under Head Coach and General Manager Bear Davis. After leading the Machine to three playoff berths and two championship games in his four seasons, former Defensive Coordinator Nat St. Laurent has stepped down to focus on his Ohio Northern University program.

“I’m very fortunate to have such an incredible staff that cares about our organization.” Davis said. “I know that each member of our staff will put the time in to help us achieve our goals and be the best version that we possibly can be every day. I’d like to personally thank Nat for his four great seasons with us. He played an integral part in developing us into a championship-caliber defense. I’m looking forward to watching him continue to grow a great Ohio Northern program.”

Darryl Delia is back with the Ohio Machine for his fourth season, serving as Offensive Coordinator. Under Delia, the Machine scored 179 goals in 2018, and was the top powerplay unit in the league in 2017 (39.02 PCT). Delia is continuing into his seventh year with the Albertus Magnus College men’s lacrosse program. Delia is also the Executive Director of DSquared Lacrosse, a clinic/camp program based out of Connecticut, Director of Lacrosse at the CT Speed School and co-owner of Run & Shoot Lacrosse.

Eric Genova returns to the Ohio Machine for his second season, overseeing the faceoff specialists. After many successful seasons coaching at the NCAA DI level, and having won a world championship with Team USA’s staff in 2010 at the FIL World Championships in Manchester, England. At Cornell University, Genova coached for the Big Red program that captured back-to-back Ivy League Championships. In 2010, Genova joined the Loyola Academy Chicago varsity staff, and has been part of seven state finalist appearances and three state championship crowns.

Bart Sullivan joins the Ohio Machine as Defensive Coordinator after a number of levels in the lacrosse community across the country. A native of Dublin, Ohio, Sullivan served as the head coach of Bellarmine University from 2011-2012, where the Knights were able to achieve their best record in program history since transitioning to Division I. From there, Sullivan became the head coach at Arapahoe High School and led the team to a perfect 19-0 record, capturing a state championship in 2012. Sullivan then worked at Southlake Carroll High School in the Dallas area, where he served as the head varsity coach as well as the programs director from 2012-2018.

The Ohio Machine will open their 2019 season training camp this Spring.
